Yes I understand where you're coming from. Can you imagine how the Succubus episode would turn out if it would've been produced a long time ago?

*personal opinion*
Oh my God! You have drawn the scene from my favourite episode of SWAT Kats! Ура!!! I love it!

*critical opinoin*
I can see a very good drawn art, which can rival with Trembleys' art: well drawn and detailed background, realistic ooze, good work with glimmering and shadows, excelent choice of colors, realistic bodies and their anatomy. And of course the face of mutated T-Bone: savaged, wild, angry and scary. It's rare to see so great done facial work.
The result: an excellent work. Keep drawing, maybe Trembley brothers will notice you and invite to work with cartoon, because you have a great tallent.
10/10

Eeeeeeee! *spinny spinny spinny spin spin spin spin*. I love mutant T-Bone and I love this! Poor T-Bone, trapped into a deranged mind and fully aware of it, and lashing out at everything surrounding him like a rabid animal.

I love the point in the episode when Razor's eyes narrow and you can see him make the decision to take T-Bone out.

And I love that he didn't do that until he'd tried to reason past the beast to the Kat he knew was inside. That's kind of what I picture here, Razor gaping in horror at his best buddy transformed. And trying to talk him down before he kicked up the octopus missile bazooka and took him out.

Man, I think the worst part honestly is that T-Bone was conscious during all of that, but couldn't stop it. That's like, the worst.

The excellent animation made this formulaic episode so much more enjoyable to watch.
Great work by Our Host nailing the show's unique BG styling and pallet.

This is probably my favorite episode of SWAT Kats just from the animation alone. You also get a really good sense of their friendship/partnership in this episode. This is excellent!

Agreed, it's my favorite thing about the show. I LOVE their friendship.  Who said romance had to be the only meaningful relationship? This show shows you what an authentic friendship looks like. They are also comrades in battle. Like how the brotherhood in TMNT is the emotional centerpiece.

MUTANT T-BONE... :heart::heart::heart:

I don't know why I like him so much.  Imagine if he could turn into that at will and you just sick him on people, lol.  What I like is some fan writers have given this condition future implications/complications.  I mean, messing with your DNA is no joke.

Thank you for the time lapse and all the love you put into every detail! You would be a top artist should they ever publish an SK comic.

Oh yeah! Kristen Sharpe did a fic about the DNA getting all mucked up from that. Although I dunno, the anti-mutagens seemed to do the trick ;)

And thanks man! Haha, who knows. The creators liked my portfolio, so we'll see :)

The funky thing about DNA is that even though the external phenotypes were fixed, you never know if there's still a glitch somewhere in the genotype (only my favorite area o bio =D)

Awesome!!! How did they see your portfolio?

not me. mine is unlikely alloys. still both are extremely good. i'd add for theses to make my top 5: destructive nature, the deadly pyramid, and caverns of horror. those are my top 5... destructive nature is the only episode that isn't from season 2
